TAPS Caught "One of the Craziest Bits of Evidence" in Pearl Harbor

Tomorrow night's episode of Ghost Hunters will feature the TAPS team's investigation of Pearl Harbor. The Deadbolt has interviewed Amy & Adam in advance of the episode. They discuss the different areas of the site they investigated, the respect required for an investigation of this type, and the interesting footage (one of the craziest bits of evidence they've caught according to Amy) they shot using full spectrum technology.

Note: The interview and excerpt below does contain some spoilers about tomorrow night's episode.
BERRY: We knew that there was a great deal of respect that had to go into what we were doing. I mean, even though it’s still 69, 70 years later, it is a touchy subject. There are still veterans from the war that are around. But the entire island of Hawaii is very familiar with the incident and what happened, and there’s still a huge Japanese culture there and the Hawaiian culture. So treading lightly was our main focus, and to show as much respect as we could. But also, we were there to investigate. So our questions went along with that. Thanking them, whoever might be there, so that they knew if they were listening that we did mean as much respect as possible.

THE DEADBOLT: Can you talk about the light source that was seen in the hangar? What do you guys think that was?

BRUNI: That’s honestly one of the craziest bits of evidence we’ve collected, and we have these new cameras. The fact that we saw something and then put a camera there because we’d seen something, to get evidence as a result of that is amazing in itself because that doesn’t happen very often. Usually you see it and then it’s gone, but these new cameras have been phenomenal. We’ve been seeing the results from the field. There are many people who do what we do, and we were seeing evidence from them coming in from the field and we were like, “We need to get our hands on some of these.” So yes, there’s definitely more coming from those cameras. I think full spectrum technology is probably one of the biggest things that has happened for the paranormal field in a long time.

GHI Wraps Up Investigation of a Historic Prison in New Zealand

The Ghost Hunters International team has just wrapped up their investigation at New Zealand's Napier Prison in Hawke's Bay.

The prison operated between 1862 and 1993, according to Hawke's Bay Today, which reported GHI's investigation. Although the co-manager of the prison wouldn't reveal any details about the team's findings, she did say that the team was "not disappointed".

The episode featuring the prison will air on July 18th on SyFy, although ironically the show doesn't air in New Zealand.

TAPS Investigates 3 Locations in Pennsylvania

Last Saturday, the TAPS team investigated a former police station in Homestead, Pennsylvania. A film crew conducted interviews and took shots of the building this Friday, wrapping up production at the location. According to a local paranormal group, the police station is home to a vortex, or gateway between the spirit world and our own. The Greater Pittsburgh Paranormal Society reported screams and movement from their investigation back in 2008.

The Carnegie Library of Homestead looks impressive, but is it haunted?

The team also searched for spirits at the Carnegie Library of Homestead and at an unnamed location (maybe a private residence?) in the Steel Valley area, about an hour away from the former police station.

These investigations are expected to air sometime later this year as part of Season 7.
